No Love for Nancy

Yesterday's Democrat defection from Nancy Pelosi (D-SF) was historic:
With 19 Democrats withholding support from Nancy Pelosi for House speaker on Wednesday, it represented the largest defection from a party's speaker nominee in nearly a century.

The resistance in the Democratic Party to back now-former Speaker Pelosi (D-Calif.) in the ceremonial first vote of the 112th Congress registered higher than at any point since 1913...
I don't expect the 19 member Blue Dog Caucus to stray from the party line much in the next two years, but they certainly took the brunt of their party's losses in November and felt the need to speak out about it.
